Did you hear the buzz in the air? Season 2 of “Yellowjackets” is already underway, whether we’re ready for the Antler Queen or not.

“Yellowjackets” followed a split story between a New Jersey high school football team that crashes into a mysterious forest on their way to the national championship game. As the girls try to find food to survive, a surprise pregnancy and the cold winter create interesting desires… with the taste of human flesh. The series cuts back and forth to the present day, where a select group of survivors are struggling with their secret of what really happened 25 years before it came to light.

As for Season 2, there’s a new queen bee hierarchy in the works, surprise cast members (including spoilers about which of the 1996 Yellowjackets teen football champions are still alive today), and too many fan conspiracy theories to unravel . What happened to Shauna’s baby? Is Jeff in on the cannibal’s secret? And what the hell is going on with Lottie’s cult today?

The critically-acclaimed viral Showtime series was seemingly destined to be a hit, earning seven Emmy nominations after a massive first season, including stars Christina Ricci and Melanie Lynskey, who were recognized for Best Supporting Actress and Best Actress, respectively.

Juliette Lewis and Tawny Cypress round out the grown-up versions of the surviving Yellowjackets (at least for now), with a teenage cast including Sophie Nelisse, Sophie Thatcher, Samantha Hanratty and Jasmin Savoy Brown playing the core group.
